Tokyo DisneySea: Where Dreams Set Sail

Tokyo DisneySea is our new favorite theme park because of its stellar line-up of areas and attractions that are based on different ports of call.

A Shy Girl’s Guide to Surviving Parties

I’m not going to sugarcoat it: parties horrify me. Introverts are social people too, but only for a limited time. Since they find happiness in spending time alone or with a group of people they’ve known for years, continuous social events deplete their metaphorical batteries.

I am often asked by my mom and our helper, “How can you manage to stay at home for a long time?” This question baffles me. I commonly respond, “But how can you guys go out every single day?” Social gatherings are inevitable and here’s how you can survive parties without abhorring them.
